Emmys 2014: Claire! January! Kaley! Red Dresses Rule the Carpet

08/25/2014 at 11:13 PM ET

The biggest trend at the 2014 Emmys may have had you seeing red. Literally, we mean. At least 13 stars stepped out in the traffic-stopping hue — check out seven of our favorites, below.

Nominee Claire Danes (far left) arrived in a gorgeous Givenchy number, greeting Gustavo Cadile-clad Giuliana Rancic with a “Hi, fellow lady in red!” Upon learning that they were two of many, Danes mused, “I’m glad to be part of the red posse.”

And who can blame her? She was in good company! She joined January Jones in Prabal Gurung, Christina Hendricks in Marchesa and a Monique Lhuillier-clad Kaley Cuoco Sweeting (above), as well as Octavia Spencer (in Tadashi Shoji), Heidi Klum (in custom Zac Posen) and best actress winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus in a custom Carolina Herrera gown (below).

Though we were surprised to see so many scarlet gowns hit the red carpet, we loved how each star put her own spin on the shade, from matching her lipstick to it à la Jones to choosing a super-girlie take on the bold hue (like Cuoco did). And we can’t deny that they deserved every ounce of attention they got in their ravishing red numbers.

Julia-Louis Dreyfus looked FABULOUS! You cannot go wrong with Caroline Herrera . . stunning, classic and understated!!

They all look amazing! Kaley and Octavia are my favorites, if I had to pick.

Kaley’s dress is the BEST!

Lollipop on

Julia and Heidi are the only ones who look good. the others mehhh, and red with pink is always a nay.
It is hard to recognize Hendricks with whatever she did to her face.

Susan on

Julia and Octavia’s dresses looked the best I think. I’m never a fan of red with pink, it always morphs to orange. Not great.

From the front, Kaley. From the back, Claire.

Loved the dress Sara Hyland from Modern Family wore. Also thought Uzo
Aduba from OITNB looked fantastic

Jennifer on

I definitely think Heidi and Kaley looked the best. Heidi was classic while Kaley was playful. The others were blah. Julia’s was ok.

sas on

heidi and julia okay…the rest, yuck.

Actors are so full of themselves. egotistical, shallow people IMO
